Employer of Choice

Feb 11, 2020

On Tuesday, January 21st at the NMMA Canada Recreational Boating Industry Breakfast at the 2020 Toronto International Boat Show, Boating Industry Canada News Week announced the winners of the 2019 Employer of Choice awards.

While many businesses participated in the program during 2019, there were four businesses that achieved award winning levels. We send our congratulations to:
M&P Mercury – Dealers/Marine
Gibbons Motor Toys – Dealers/Marine
Princecraft – Marine Business
Desmasdon’s Boatworks – Dealers/Marine

Although not present at the January 21 event, we congratulate M&P Mercury of Burnaby, B.C. in the Dealers/Marine category and Gibbons Motor Toys of Gibbons, Alberta in the Dealers/Marine category. M&P Mercury has been an award winner for three years now and Gibbons Motor Toys of Gibbons, Alberta has just joined the program in 2019.

The Employer of Choice program is a business management tool that is available to marine industry businesses and there is no cost for qualified businesses to participate and gain the benefit of the resources. The costs only apply to purchasing the detailed reports if a participating business elects to do so.

Boating Industry Canada News Week has supported this valuable program for several years as a means of supporting the industry in our quest to attract and maintain more valuable employees. Benefits of becoming an Employer of Choice include:
         • Reduced turnover – More engaged workforce
         • Increased productivity
         • Positive employer branding and PR
         • Higher customer satisfaction and loyalty

About a month ago, I traveled to Charlevoix, MI for a special press event to introduce the H9 to a small group of journalists. The water and the weather were a bit cool but the sun was out and Lake Charlevoix was calm and the Four Winns H9 was very impressive.
